[00:00:00] [00:00:30] Dr. Mark Trozzi, MD: Hear from our affiliate, Cathal Healy Singh who’s from Trinidad and Tobago, and is with our affiliate organization C19 Transparency group. He’ll take the mic. [00:00:41] Cathal Healy Singh: Hi. Good evening, everyone. So I was in Guyana in what was once British Guyana when COVID arrived and there was a lock down and I was actually in the office of climate change as the advisor to the government. And that office was actually safely closed down because Exxon had drove first oil in Guyana in December of 2019. [00:01:05] And I had no way of getting back to Trinidad because the government had closed the borders. So I ended up here and London, which is where I’m speaking from. [00:01:15] I was worked around the Caribbean as an environmental engineer. I was largely based in Trinidad and Barbados some Guyana and so on, but in any event, just cutting straight to the chase, in Trinidad, we have about 1.4 million people. [00:01:30] So it’s a tiny little drop in everybody’s bucket. We had about 45.1% with a complete vaccination and slightly less percentage with one dose. And that hasn’t changed and that’s unlikely to change significantly, but I’m just showing you this picture here, because one of the things that the government has been hard pressed to do is to prevent us from having a clear picture of the vaccination status of the cases, the hospitalization, the recovery, and the deaths and how they’ve done that over time has varied and what they’re actually doing now, that we know that there a significant uptick in breakthrough cases with people who’ve been vaccinated, they are reporting what they’re calling at the bottom percentage of patients in the parallel healthcare system who are not fully vaccinated. [00:02:27] And you can see that the parallel healthcare system means the healthcare system set up to address COVID. And you can see that they’re using a number 91.7% saying they’re not fully vaccinated, but what they’re doing there of course is not allowing us to distinguish between the unvaccinated and the well, not fully vaccinated. [00:02:48] So that, that’s the latest example of how they’re avoiding the transparency. So what we did is, three of us met online, a doctor, an architect and myself sometime in May, and we formed this COVID-19 transparency advocacy group. And we wrote an extensive paper that was largely penned by the doctor in the group. [00:03:12] We have one doctor who is an extremely intelligent and compassionate man who has come forward. And that’s the only doctor that has come forward publicly in Trinidad to advocate for transparency. So we wrote an extensive letter, addressed it to the medical board of Trinidad and largely focusing on ethics, around informed consent, and never received a response. [00:03:36] And then we prepared quite an extensive paper on vaccination in children, claiming that it was both unjustifiable from, for medical reasons and unethical. And then the other significant thing that we did was to go to court with a pre-action protocol letter and request for information concerning the ministry policy on administering in particular, the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine to ages 12 to 15. [00:04:04] And, I was very impressed by Mr. Bongani Luthuli’s presentation and we have documents that we have submitted as well. And our ministry of health has ignored us and our lawyers since got cold feet and Trinidad is, it’s a very corrupt space in many regards, and there’s a lot of young lawyers who would be very afraid to take this on. [00:04:29] So we, a number of groups formed in Trinidad and Tobago. It may seem like a whole lot for such a small place. But we ha we don’t have collaborated with your colleague Lindon Mark, from the TMT human rights voice and with media and so on. [00:04:46] But one main thing is the government’s messaging is “vaccinate to operate”, and we turned it to “educate to operate”. So it’s a war of messaging, and we essentially have produced a number of flyers for public circulation handing out in markets, outside schools, outside vaccination centers. [00:05:08] We hand out messaging. I just want to say the Trinidad has been in a state of emergency for six, six months. And that has just been lifted a few days ago, but it’s been replaced by a public health ordinance that I will just share with you. [00:05:27] But yeah, we’ve had a coercive campaign of by the government with these vaccines. There is absolutely zero attempt to provide informed consent. And there’s a lot of anxiety that has built up in the society. And as you saw, with the people who refuse the vaccine, but we call it vaccine caution is what we call ourselves that we’re cautious and we’re advocating caution, [00:05:51] but in the people, who’ve had the vaccine where there are adverse effects, in a small place, the news gets around. And we have, when I say we, that our doctor, Dr. Rageves, I think he appeared on one of your four the Caribbean one sometime ago. He has visited a number of patients. [00:06:10] And what he’s found is that the government is in denial about their status as being adversely affected. And they’re essentially being pushed out into the margins and out of public sight. And for those people who haven’t taken the vaccine who chose not to, they, that have been at home in the schools have been closed in Trinidad. [00:06:32] Since right up through till September for the whole year, this is the second year of new school has been a lot of damage to children. Who’ve basically forgotten how to add and subtract, multiply and divide. And the government did a terrible thing by bringing out only the vaccinated students and then mounting a very aggressive campaign on everybody else to get vaccinated in secondary school with the 12 to 17 year olds. [00:07:00] And they managed to get 20% of the secondary school, sorry, 20% of the school population vaccinated, which is about 18,000 secondary school students out of a population of 90,000. And that was really tragic to see the children lining up for their vaccines and going to school. And then in school now they have everybody masked up and walking with sanitizers and, behaving in abnormal ways. [00:07:30] And there’ve been a number of incidents of aggression and fighting between the two groups, which is exactly what we didn’t want to happen. And we were advocating against. [00:07:39] I’m almost done, but there should be a picture of saying responsible parents, TT, which is a group that we formed specifically to confront the vaccination in children, because we realized that we couldn’t really influence what was happening in the adults. [00:07:55] The die was cast, but any children, the fight is on, which is why we went to court. [00:08:01] So the reason why I wanted to show it, because it was similar to the world council for health image imaging, and that we felt really, quite pleased with ourselves about that. [00:08:11] So that’s the reason why I’m just showing you. So going to the next slide, it should say deaths pre and post vaccination drive. So this is some data that we are currently updating, but we, our extensive research that we did early on, we showed that in our case, in Trinidad with quite consistent with the numbers of deaths around the world pre and post the vaccine rollout. [00:08:37] And that was certainly very much the case in Trinidad. As you can see that. [00:08:40] There were 150 over a year before the vaccine. And there were 893 deaths in about a third of that time after the vaccine drive. If you go to the next slide the data before ended in July, and we’re working on it this graph, which says T and T on top total deaths that’s the government figure under the uptake [00:09:03] now at the very end. Since the kids have gone out to school in September and, very worrisome out of control where it seems to us that, the vaccine is driving infections, it’s driving transmission, it’s waned already from it’s early on the four or five, six months has past. [00:09:23] And, there are these adverse events that are being hidden. Next slide. I’m showing this, are you seeing it’s like the new normal? [00:09:30] Yeah. Yeah. So what’s remarkable about this is the, this is government messaging and this is particularly alarming to me because when I arrived in England, I was promptly given Klaus Schwab’s COVID-19 the great reset, and coming out of climate change and the work that I have been involved in, it’s real. [00:09:51] But, this COVID climate crisis, the real nexus going on, and there’s a kind of a seamless continuity, but I’m just showing that slide to show you what our government has adopted very Orwellian new normal on its website. And the next slide, it says vaccine passes required. And this is the, what government has done is created what they call safe zones, where with the vaccine path, you can go and, eat and drink and participate in businesses that they’re calling safe zones. [00:10:25] And I just wanted to show you what our counter message to that was. If you go to the next slide, no segregation all are welcome. [00:10:33] So really it’s a battle for the minds and the imagination of the population that we’re engaged in, very aggressive on, on the one hand and ourselves trying to fight for caution, but this one is really directed at the businesses in Trinidad and Tobago. [00:10:50] And there’s been limited uptake. People are very much afraid of it, but yet still there are some people, some businesses, largely small businesses. That have posted it and adopted it. You can get it as a full-size poster. So that’s and the next slide I wanted to show you, it should say new health ordinance. [00:11:10] And what I’m showing you here is that after the state of emergency was lifted, in fact, what is replacing it is these, this new novel coronavirus regulations. And I just want to go to the next slide and show you something quite remarkable that the government has insisted on. So you should be seeing some text here and what’s remarkable is they talk about for the purposes of controlling and preventing the spread of COVID-19, it will be an offense during the periods specified, et cetera, to be found at or in any beach, sea, river, stream, pond, spring, or similar body of water. This is an extremely tyrannical ordinance to impose on island people who largely, you know, depend for health and recreation, I’m just pointing that out. [00:12:04] If we have a real problem on our hands in Trinidad and Tobago, for sure. So going to the next slide, it should say punitive fines. And I just wanted to show you. I was actually trying to find an update on how much they’ve collected so far, but you can see that there is remarkable penalties for, for owners of businesses for adults who fail to wear masks or fail to ensure that children are wearing masks. [00:12:31] And these are Trinidad and Tobago dollars, but if you divided by seven, it gives you an approximate, U S figure. And I just going to the next slide, which has the end on it. I’m just going to end to show you what our messaging looks like for this upcoming event on the 30th of of November, which is a Tuesday. [00:12:54] We’re hoping that a mass crowd will come here being supported by the radio station that is working with us. I just wanted to wrap up to say that, in small places, politics thing, and they really shaped the public interest response on the extent to which people will come out and stand up for, but like I said, we have a small core of people who have done an extraordinary amount of work on chat groups and educating people, parents in particular and in general public, but I’m really grateful for the Africa conference. I think we learned an extraordinary amount. I’m most grateful for all of you. [00:13:34] And thank you very much. [00:13:35] Dr. Naseeba Kathrada: Thank you so much Cathal for always participating and for your input. That, that was great. Thank you. [00:13:41]
